Can't change drawer icon for NavigationDrawer

I'm trying to implement the new

NavigationDrawer
provided since the last Android keynote.

I got everything up and running, the navigation drawer opens and closes when pressing on the icon on the top left corner.

But now I still have the arrow icon although I replaced it with the ic_drawer from Android. Why?

Here's my code where I specified the icon:

mDrawerToggle = new ActionBarDrawerToggle(
this,
mDrawerLayout,
R.drawable.ic_drawer, //<-- This is the icon provided by Google itself
R.string.drawer_open,
R.string.drawer_close
)


But the application still runs with the standard icon of
setDisplayHomeAsUpEnabled
.

Any ideas?

Answer

I just got the Navigation Drawer working. I had forgotten to add following methods also provided by the developer.android.com examples:

@Override
protected void onPostCreate(Bundle savedInstanceState) {
    super.onPostCreate(savedInstanceState);
    // Sync the toggle state after onRestoreInstanceState has occurred.
    mDrawerToggle.syncState();
}

@Override
public void onConfigurationChanged(Configuration newConfig) {
    super.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
    mDrawerToggle.onConfigurationChanged(newConfig);
}
